College Infrastructure
The college infrastructure is good and the labs are well maintained, there is individual block for every department. Phones are generally not allowed but you can carry basic mobile phones, the food is also good in canteen.
Academics
They are very strict in studies and can be very strict, but it helps you score good CGPA. Special classes are also conducted occasionally, since it is now autonomous the syllabus will be updated every year.
Placements
For computer science the placement is extraordinary, because so many companies come for placements every week, if you are csc then the chances of you being placed is very high. They are very supportive in making you placed.
Value-for-money
This is one of the top colleges in Chennai.
Campus Life
The college is generally strict, if you want complete freedom this college won't suit for you.
Anything Else
Top college in Chennai, but securing a seat is very tough and competitive.

The faculty and the placements are excellent. Placements: VEC is a reputed college in Chennai, regarding placement. This college is the best because you just need to clear arrears. Then the college will assure you a job with their training and placement. Almost, in my batch, only three eligible students are unplaced. If you have arrears, also VEC gives you an opportunity to be in the process of placement. In 1st and 2nd years, they give stress towards the academics, and in 3rd and final year, they provide both academics and placement training. Reputed companies like Amazon, Zoho, Himachal Pradesh visit the campus and offers a package up to 12 LPA. IT sector companies like TCS, CTS, Wipro gives package from 3 LPA to 6 LPA. IT sector jobs are guaranteed. Infrastructure: VEC has a decent infrastructure, which is not great to talk about. Honestly, VEC doesn't excel in their infrastructure. But the infrastructure is nothing bad to say. The infrastructure is decent and not of grand look with all the lab facilities. The classroom and labs excel with decent space for it. Hostel rooms are par, and hostel food is a disaster, as my hostel friends told. The canteen is decent, providing food at cheaper rates. Faculty: VEC faculty are skilled and kind-hearted. The faculty treats the students as their child. And college also provides some additional class for the arrear students. The course curriculum excels in VEC because they teach you with a real-time example. VEC will surely increase your percentage according to the industry skills.

A nice college with greatly influencing faculties and great infrastructure in the lab as well as classrooms. Placements are great and now they are achieving even 100% placements for eligible candidates. Cultural activities can be encouraged and the focus on extra curricular activities should be increased.

It was like a roller coaster ride when I did my engineering there. There were ups and downs, pros and cons. You are to bring your own vehicle. Located just opposite to the banks of the puzhal lake so, at times you can get to see mesmerising scenic beauties with the courtesy of nature.

Infrastructure was pretty ok compared to others and had very less attention for sports . The faculty was excellent. I developed knowledge and discipline which helped me in corporate grounds. I will strongly recommend this college. You will have plenty of resources to learn and it is effective only we have the ability to utilise it properly . One of the top rated colleges and I am surely happy about the experience here .

As other reputed colleges this college has the same disposition when it comes to academics, placements etc., Ther are certain rules to be followed within the college and the leniency varies from department to department. Students are allowed to come by their own vehicles,if not college bus is also available, its our own discretion to choose it or not.

Had a very difficult time in following the so-called rules like wearing formals, clean shave,black shoe,coming to class before 8:40 a.m. Calling our parents to the college for silly reasons like not shaving properly. Everything in the college will follow an order for getting any certificates like Bonafide,fee structure,etc.. you need to go to admin block to get the form then you need to fill it and again went to department to get your class teacher sign and HOD sign which will be a tedious process since you can't meet HOD whenever you want. After getting the sign again the form to be submitted to the office of the admin block.

Here the students are not treated as a student. This college is full of rules and restrictions. Students, those who are not good in their academics are restricted from participating in academic events and other competitions. There is no relaxation time.

One of the reputed colleges in Chennai which provide quality education. UG programs are very strict but I had an experience of studying there. Great friendly teachers, finest labs and library facilities. It is one of very few colleges located within the city premises. I had a great exposure there.Better placement facilities.

As my college campus located near to Central station and affordable with easy availability of buses and trains. was staying in College hostel within the college premises. The hostel infrastructure was neat and clean and we were provide with single and double room options. We were provided with mineral water, delicious food, newspapers, internet, common area, TV, landline, Wi-Fi etc....In third year our college has initiated EDUSAT programme to get in touch with IIT professors.

When it comes to culture, Anna university (only the affiliated colleges, not the main Guindy campus one) in Tamil Nadu are typically ISIS. However when i joined up this college, they got a little more progressive but are still not anything like the colleges up north. That being said, the quality of education is quite good and most of the professors are great but the best part about it are the students. I've met some of the best people in my life here from all over Tamil Nadu and i am greatful to this college for that. The hostel food is shitty but not unhygienic. Just that its tasteless. I know this despite being a day scholar because i sneaked in once and i never did that again ;). They just give out above average food on the opening day where all are supposed to eat at the mess and then they fuck you all year around. Sadly by the time i was leaving, the college management started to focus more on their schools as that got them better profits.

Game begins here .Entered the campus on 2010. The day I would never forget. Engineering sounds big for me at that day . The days passed , got new friends. Fresher turned to be a senior on 2nd year . Yeah I reached my 2nd year . After that moment, College life turned to be a racy one . Exposure to my electrical engineering started . Started learning about engineering. After that 3rd year , I act as an Editor for my college magazine. This year gave me a chance to show my communication and editorial skills. Final year , the moment I realised that college life is gonna come to an end . One of the coordinator for the symposium, Engineering project execution with my teammates. This year turned my life upside down . Like take off of a little bird from its nest to the sky. Last but not the least , We never missed the FUN component during the college life. Climax was so awesome. we enjoyed to the core. But the game ended. GAME OVER

"Saying about college infrastructure it not up to the level of reputation it has gained and the same exists for even the faculty members , sports etc Regarding canteen they don't offer much variety of foods. The thing to be appreciated is they have good placements for students with a good score"

The college is good. It has few good teachers but few seminars, quizzes and other such activities. Acc to me there should be more industry-student interaction, else the knowledge gets limited to books. Girls get good placement opportunities. But, boys are at stake. Also, the hostel rules are made you feel far away from home. at times, I got the feeling that the warden is paid too less and hence his behaviour and revenge thru students in this manner. Some students get in thru financial backing and hence there is a stark variation in the quality of students on campus. Even if u enter the college with a good score, u meet many more who is academically retarded to the extent that they can’t say the difference between a square and a rectangle.
